Banff Mountain Photo Essay Competition 2024

Banff Mountain Photo Essay Competition 2024

The competition is organized by the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Canada.

 The competition format is the photo essay. At its simplest, the definition of a photo-essay is a set or series of photographs that are intended to tell a story or evoke emotions in the viewer. We invite photographers to submit curated photo essays to illustrate their mountain related stories that fall under the sub-categories of culture, adventure, wildlife, sport, environment, or natural history.

The 2024 Banff Mountain Photo Essay Competition opens January 10!

Entry Guidelines

  • Each essay submitted is to consist of three (3) to five (5) images.

  • $3000 CAD Grand prize

The competition’s goal is to showcase the best in mountain-themed photo essays – to recognize the best stories told through a series of still images. We invite photographers to submit photos to illustrate their mountain related stories whether culture, adventure, wildlife, sport, environment, or natural history. The jury is seeking a sequence of images that conveys a compelling story or message – with each image strong enough to stand on its own while conveying a greater narrative when viewed in the photographer’s desired sequence.
